Two views of Lourdes

As I was such a glorious day, I re-took one of my favourite views of the basilicas.

I also tried to reproduce a shot of the hemicycle that I have seen on a postcard. This is the best I could do, together with some slightly wacky colour balancing:

Here is one of the chapels inside. To be frank, I think that the average B&Q warehouse is more attractive.

I drafted that post earlier. This afternoon, in the space of less than half an hour, the weather suddenly changed and there was a violent hailstorm for about five minutes. Unfortunately, it washed out the Blessed Sacrament procession and when it dried up a litle, everyone headed straight to the underground basilica. I'll see if I can get some photos tomorrow.
